Jomolhari Trek

Challenging but a worthy trek that takes to the hot springs in Dur. The journey, with steep ascents and descents, is memorable for the beauty of the landscapes, and a huge variety of wildlife (trout, Blue Sheep, Musk Deer and Himalayan Black Bear), views of mountains, lakes, forests teeming with trees like spruce, hemlock, juniper and maple. Bhutanese believe the hot springs have amazing medicinal values and these are touted as the best in the entire Himalayas.
